Chanel jewellery: a star studded Comete Christmas

The new Comete collection from Chanel jewellery brings Mademoiselle Chanel's beloved star motif to the fore, depicted in diamonds, pearls and black spinels.

Finding a piece of Chanel jewellery from the new Comete collection in our stocking come 25 December would be a case of all our Christmas wishes coming true. The maison's latest high jewellery collection really is as mesmerising and beautiful as a constellation of stars - the perfect Christmas gifts for women who love Chanel and love diamonds.

The enduring brilliance of the star and the comet was a constant source of inspiration for Gabrielle Chanel, who saw it as representative of the eternal beauty of women. In fact, so taken was she with these cosmic motifs that they featured in her very first fine jewellery collection, Bijoux de Diamants, launched in Paris in 1932. At the time, Mademoiselle proclaimed: "I wanted to cover women in constellations of stars. Stars of all sizes."

Reminiscent of the twinkling Parisian night sky, stars of white gold, diamonds and pearls light up a collection divided into three distinct themes: Etoile Filante, Voie Lactee and Nuit de Diamants. One of the highlights is the Nuits de Diamants necklace in white gold with black spinals and 97 brilliant-cut diamonds. On the Voie Lactee ring, a constellation of stars in the shape of brilliant-cut diamonds and Japanese cultured pearls dance across the finger.

Arriving in store now, amongst the new Comete jewels is a very special Christmas gift for men also: Etoile Filante cufflinks in white gold, set with 116 brilliant-cut diamonds.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
